This article has info:

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/tv_and_radio/3177479.stm

"Greg Dyke, director general of the BBC, has announced plans to give the public full access to all the corporation's programme archives.

Mr Dyke said on Sunday that everyone would in future be able to download BBC radio and TV programmes from the internet.

The service, the BBC Creative Archive, would be free and available to everyone, as long as they were not intending to use the material for commercial purposes, Mr Dyke added.

"The BBC probably has the best television library in the world," said Mr Dyke, who was speaking at the Edinburgh TV Festival. "

But then, unfortunately:

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk_politics/3448943.stm

'Greg Dyke has said he was forced to quit as director general of the BBC by the corporation's governors.

Mr Dyke, who quit a day after Gavyn Davies resigned as BBC chairman, also renewed his criticism of the government and Lord Hutton on Sunday.'


Hopefully this won't affect the Creative Archive, though rumor has it it might do, since Mr.Dyke was one of the bigger proponents of the plan.

s!
